Abstract—Growth performance using prepared feed (F1) was compared with one commercial feed, Quality fish feed (F2) in two respective treatments of T1 and T2. Both treatments were carried out in triplicate at 200/dec for Thai pangus. Average initial weight of Thai pangus was 25.13 g respectively. Growth performances were influenced by feed type. Mean weight gain (g) of Thai pangus were 130.76 ± 14.25 and 88.4 ± 3.40, average weight gain (g) were 1.87 ± 0.21 and 1.26 ± 0.05 and specific growth rate (% day-1) were 1.13 ± 0.06 and 0.94 ± 0.02 in T1 and T2 respectively. Feed conversion ratio were 1.93 ± 0.30 and 2.34 ± 0.12, survival percentages were 96.17 ± 3.79 and 97.78 ± 1.76 and fish production (kg/ha/70days) were 6126.58 ± 852.64 and 4274.47 ± 225.19 in T1 and T2 respectively. The present research findings suggested that quality feed ingredient like fish meal is essential for feed formulation through which increased growth and production could be achieved.
